FAQs 

I really like your work can we meet?

Of course we can meet, two of the most important aspects of choosing your photographer should be based on the fact you do like them and their work! I would be more than happy to send you a copy of my pricing guide, from there we can have a conversation about pricing and the needs of your wedding day. When we meet you will have an opportunity to view my portfolio and more about I conduct a wedding day. I do conduct many of my meetings on Long Island. While there are times I may not be able to meet with clients because of distance, I think its necessary to at least have a phone conversation, video conference, email correspondence to see if we would be a great match. Google MEET  is fantastic!

 

How far in advance can I book you for my wedding?

Generally, I book 6– 12 months in advance; however, it doesn’t hurt to email me if you want to find out if I’m available for your date so you can snag me right away. Please be aware that peak months, such as June – September, book rather quickly.

Do you book small elopements/ weddings? Yes, I have been specializing photographing  small weddings elopements for years.  Requirement of booking is at least 2 hours.  

 

Do you have backup equipment and insurance?

Yes, I like to be prepared for any situation, so I will always have backup equipment and liability insurance in order to guarantee quality photos of your wedding day.

 

Do you  offer a second shooter?  Not at this time

 

When do I receive my photos? Within 60 business days with a digital download of high resolution photos

 

I am planning my wedding from a different state/ country can I still book and work with

you ?  Believe it or not, 75% of my weddings last year were booked over the phone/ email last year.

 

How do I seal the deal and secure the date with you?

There are two items needed to secure the date: a 30% retainer and a signed contract. Unfortunately, without these two items, the date cannot be secured. and every one of them

 

Do you offer the RAW files from the wedding? 

Raw files are large unedited images that require extensive editing. I do not offer purchase of RAW files
